A few days ago, Somnium Space, the open, persistent VR world announced when the highly anticipated Secondary Land Offering (SLO) will take place. The SLO follows the Initial Land Offering (ILO), in October last year, and the 10-week Road to Secondary Land Offering (Road to SLO) campaign, which finished a few days ago on May 24th.
Somnium Space is a continuous, persistent VR world that comprises a total of 5000 VR land parcels, which come in three different sizes: Small, Medium and XLarge. Early backers obtained a number of those and during the ILO and Road to SLO campaigns many more parcels changed hands. The current state is that 1639 parcels have been sold. The remaining parcels, 3361, remain in Somnium’s hands for now, but the expectation is that all those parcels will be available for the SLO.
Somnium Space released a new map during Road to SLO. On this map you can easily see the distribution of the virtual land parcels. Colored parcels have been sold, grey parcels are still in the hands of the company and will be up for sale during the SLO.
Secondary Land Offering in October 2020!
The Road to SLO campaign was highly successful. The total amount spent after 10 weeks of Road to SLO landed on 2327 ETH (more than USD 450.000). This translates to roughly 6 ETH per parcel sold.
If Road to SLO is an indication of what’s to come, then the Secondary Land Offering will without doubt see a high participation from both existing and new users.
This is what Somnium Space announced in a Medium post:

Easter eggs will be hidden inside the Somnium Space world. Some can be found only in VR mode, some from the non-VR 2D perspective. Bitcoin Cash QR codes of different values from 5$ to 50$ will be hidden as well and you can claim them directly with your wallet by scanning the code! We will send you other prizes after you tweet a picture of the treasure and tag @SomniumSpace with #SomniumTreasureVR hashtag and your ETH wallet address. First come first served so be fast and dedicated! Amazing prizes are coming from our great partners OpenSea, Museum of Crypto Art (M○C△),Matic , Bitcoin Jesus himself — Roger Ver with Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and of course we are contributing Somnium CUBEs as well! Good luck hunters and gunters and see you on the other side of the monitor!Somnium Space
So there is plenty of action in Somnium, with both the treasure hunt around the corner and the SLO later this year.
Apart from these company initiated events, there is a lot going on in-world. People who bought parcels are not beating around the bush. Below a few examples of what’s happening (and has happened) in Somnium.
